So, what are you saying? The internet's going to be shot to death in Bolivia?

One of Hillary’s flunkies recently launched the most bizarre metaphor I think I’ve ever encountered.
Hillary Clinton's senior adviser for innovation at the US state department has lauded the way the internet has become "the Che Guevara of the 21st century" in the Arab Spring uprisings.
Humberto Fontova is not amused.

A bit modest as usual Paco? I think it's clear that one of
Madam Secretary's flunkies has somehow stumbled across your edited versions of the lost Guevara diaries and take inspiration. Obviously this person has somewhat misinterpreted them but that's no reason to deny yourself the credit. Incidentally, when can we expect another chapter? You must have found some more in whatever dusty shoebox in the Command Bunker contains them.

My dear fellow! I have an entire book of Che stories that I expect to publish in the near future. My publisher and I have ok'd the illustrations, and I'm just waiting for the galley proofs.

Perhaps I can beat out the Onion for a Pulitzer!

Judging from Alec Ross' photo, he's what?... all of twelve years old? That seems to be the level of maturity operating in tired old Cankle-PantSuit's cadre these days. No wonder Alec is invoking Che. All he knows is a face on a T-shirt and some half-assed hagiography.

"galley proofs"? bit like a bireme test bed?

Oh yeah, smart guy? How many people has "the Internet" killed, then?

The Stalinists have promoted Che as the freedom fighter as a tool to promote their pro-communist/anti-America agenda. It was International ANSWER who came up with the t-shirts and other merchandise that are favorites, especially on high school and university campuses. The gullible willingly buy the propoganda, thereby promoting a mass murderer who had a big bay window over the execution yard so he could watch. He often participated in executions and torture.

I attended Humberto's presentation a few years ago. There were men who had been at the Bay of Pigs. It was very informative. Che and Fidel had a falling out, which prompted Che to head to South America. It wasn't until years later that they made up and Fidel used him as a tool. And a great usefool tool he has been.
